Watch Focus: Spirit of Liberty
America, Arise and Shine!
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed” (Lk. 4:18).
We welcomed the Presence of the Lord by lighting the Shabbat candles.
Watch Leader: We create an atmosphere for His Presence to come. God’s got a plan for us. You are God’s priests standing for your family, children, coworkers and nation. We celebrate freedom and carry Freedom Himself.
Message: Jason Oberman
I feel a sense of liberty. I felt a vibration of God in this room. I saw people peek into the glory bubble. The Lord is inviting people to step into the bubble of glory.
I saw the movie called The Bubble Boy. The boy would roll around in this bubble. Tonight, I saw mountains, obstacles and negative voices being rolled over and dissolved. Lord, take us into the bubble. Spirit of God roll in this place tonight. Bring joy, healing, deliverance, prosperity and breakthrough. Come! We receive Your benefits. We step into God’s bubble as we pray for Mahesh in Ashland, VA. Bless him! God bless America!
I had something funny happen. I am thankful for Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison for inventing light and electricity. Today, my electricity went out. I went to use my laptop and couldn’t. I went to take a shower downstairs in the dark. My tub stopped up because it is on a sump pump. I couldn’t iron and I couldn’t do my hair. It made me think about the freedom we have in this country to invent. We are blessed.
I want to read from Mahesh and Bonnie’s booklet God Shed His Grace on Thee. “From America’s very beginning, men and women in pursuit of the Destiny that God put in their hearts, persevered through much travail of soul and body, never flagging, never failing to believe and pray, standing fast on the words of the holy Scriptures, and doing exploits for the establishment of this nation. It is the spiritual heritage of every American to have faith in God and commit themselves and their fortunes to His Divine Intention that the lamp of Liberty might shine from Christ and those who sit in darkness may have hope…”
Those men and women gave their life for what we enjoy today. We experience blessing because our nation was founded on godly principles. The Lord has called us to be blessed. There’s a place in our inheritance for blessing. Make God your compass and you will receive the blessing of God.
What is happening today in our country does not affect us because we live under a different authority and kingdom. The Lord wants to stir our faith. Hebrew 11:1. NOW Faith. Faith in this scripture stands for a title deed. When you have faith, hope comes. The Lord is releasing faith in us. Sometimes a cloud comes, but God is releasing a blessing. Hebrews 11:6. The opposite of faith is fear. Fear is a toxic cloud being loosed and released. But in God is a place of faith. The Lord wants you blessed in this country. He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Hebrews 11:8 says, “By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.” So there is a degree of risk to the natural mind. We can’t stay in a toxic smoke cloud. Abraham stepped out and entered into the promise of God. God is stirring that faith in you. Fear has come but the Spirit of Liberty is here to loose those bonds tonight.
Wealth. Deuteronomy 8:18 says, “You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” Which spirit possesses money? The Spirit of God or Mammon? Walk in the fullness of God as our inheritance. The Word of God is the will of God. The Lord has called us to be blessed; it's our inheritance. We have power to get wealth. Are you walking in the fullness? We must say, “Lord, bid me to come” like Peter.
The DNA of our country is in Judeo-Christian values. We are a nation unto God. As you look to the history, we are blessed with God’s blessing. We are destined with purpose to be a city on a hill. We are citizens of this country inherently. Isaac sowed in a time of famine. He re-dug the wells of his father Abraham and they brought forth water. Water in those days was a sign of wealth. It’s about honoring the fathers and honoring their fruitfulness. We have been blessed so we can be a blessing.
Understand what this country was built upon and create a shift. The results are fruitfulness. He gives me the power to get wealth. He positions you in places. God is turning things around. Clear the air of fear and look to the Word of God. Faith has to be established. Look to the Word. He can reestablish His covenant on the earth.
Deuteronomy 8:7-9 says, “For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing out in the valleys and hills, a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey, a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing, a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you can dig copper.” God has given us a good land. A land in which we lack nothing… So, establish His covenant. Be lenders, not borrowers. Imagine overnight your home is paid off. It’s the heart of God to make us lenders, not borrowers. Many times it seems we have a poverty mentality rooted in an orphan spirit. We need to see clearly as sons of God.
Deuteronomy 8:2, “And you shall remember the whole way that the Lord your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that he might humble you, testing you to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments or not.” What’s in our heart? It’s about the heart. It’s more about what is in God’s heart for us. Do we line up with what is in His heart? Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Deuteronomy 8:3, we don’t live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the Word of God. The Word will cause negativity to blow away. The Lord wants to encourage us.
The parable about the seed and the sower is about the soil, which is the heart. God deals with the issues of the heart to prepare us to step into what He has for us. Matthew 13:8. Where is our heart at? Check your heart posture periodically. When it’s the darkest, the light can shine brightest on your behalf. If there are areas in your life that you feel unworthy, remember that it is the heart of Abba Father to bless you and give you power to get wealth.
God is the God of the breakthrough. In a day the richest nation, Egypt, laid down everything to transfer its wealth to the Israelites. The Lord wants to breakthrough mindsets tonight. Take the limits off. The Spirit of breakthrough is here. It’s God’s desire, it’s His heart. There is a spirit of liberty tonight.
There may be a wall in your finances that looks fifty miles high. It’s the heart of God to give you the power to get wealth that you may be a living testimony. There’s balance with all things. Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. I want to release breakthrough over your finances tonight. Those of you who need breakthrough, come to the altar.
Colorado Wildfires: We need revival rain. We cry out in the spirit of Elijah. We ask that You, Lord, send Your literal rain over Colorado. Elijah called out asking for rain. Let it rain over Colorado.
America: We surround the flag tonight and lay hands on the red, white and blue. In 1492 there was an edict issued that every last Jew needed to be out of Spain by August. Christopher Columbus set sail in August. We are so connected to Israel. America needs to rise and shine.
During worship there was a rhythm of the heartbeat of the Lord as the team sang about the dry bones from Ezekiel. I saw the Lord stand before these dry bones that had been assembled (America) and overshadow her with His heartbeat and massage His blood into the very heart of America. Acts 13:20-22. After God gave the Israelites judges, the Israelites cried out for a king so He gave them Saul. But after a set time had passed, God removed Saul and placed David as king. He said that He had searched the land and found David to be a man whose heart beats to His heart and who would do what He told him. So now in this set time, we declare a shift, a replacement of Saul with David. We, His Church in America, will have His heart beat and we will do His will!
Lord, the government is upon Your shoulders and You set the leaders in place. You are the head authority. Your arm is not too short. Awake Your people in this country to Your precepts. We ask for Your mercy. Your heartbeat that is beating over America. Thank You for the Founding Fathers and the 4th of July. You gave them visitation and a fierceness to fight for Your plan of one nation under God with liberty and justice for all. We can hear Your heartbeat. You will do an awesome thing. Thank You for liberality. Thank You for the blessing of the Lord in the midst of the nations.
We stand in the gap and ask You to cleanse our nation from addiction. Turn our leaders and media so they can proclaim righteousness. May Your wave of glory supersede all the other waves.
Thank You for a shift in America and an awakening of Your people. We take back every mountain. We put our foot down and reclaim every place our feet tread as our territory. The peace of God will soon crush Satan under our feet. We cancel the lie. We have a position of authority and we declare the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, over the land. We ask for a common goal and purpose to win the war. Help us, Lord, to regain our nation. Roman 8:26. Zechariah 4:6.
Troops: Thank You for the sons and daughters that fight for our freedom. Hover over the capital for the blood of those who built this nation. There has been much blood invested in this nation. It is time to rebuild the old waste places. You are causing restoration to come. We say yes to Your mighty work and Your might hand. We cry out for godly leaders.
Revival: Thank You for Your word and for revival in the White House, Senate, Congress, businesses and schools. Thank You for changed hearts and minds. Remove the scales and touch the cold hearts. Thank You for mercy. It shall prevail.
Pastors: We speak blessing over our pastors. Give them supernatural wisdom. Through this house, let ANC be a lighthouse. Thank You for the privilege of letting us be Your watchmen.
Leviticus 25:10; 2 Corinthians 3:17; Isaiah 61:1
Word: We lay hold of the flag in our House of Representatives. I researched the Sergeant of Arms and the mace. The design of the mace is derived from an ancient battle weapon and the Roman fasces. The ceremonial mace is 46 inches high and consists of 13 ebony rods, representing the original 13 states of the Union, bound together by silver strands criss-crossed over the length of the pole. Atop this shaft is a silver globe on which sits an intricately cast solid silver eagle. In accordance with the House Rules, on the rare occasion that a member becomes unruly, the Sergeant at Arms, upon order of the Speaker, lifts the mace from its pedestal and presents it before the offenders, thereby restoring order. When a confrontation on the House floor becomes unruly, the tradition is that, upon direction of the Speaker, the Sergeant at Arms will step between the combatants with the mace. The flag represents the authority we have over America as Christians. We raise the mace of His hand and command the bickering and complaining to stop. We declare Jesus Lord over America. Isaiah 9:6.
Word: I was watching the news this morning about the Supreme Court rulings and said to the Lord: “Lord, our nation needs a new heart! If a man (that you created!) can open another person’s chest and physically massage the heart to beat again…your hand is not too short to save the heart of this nation-America”. While it was just a prayer in my prayer closet at home, I was moved when during the corporate watch another watchman described this exact dynamic of the heart massage while praying for America.
In 1994 I was living below the poverty line. I was a Spirit-filled believer but in that season, I was behind on my rent and facing eviction. I remember crying out to God because there was just no fathomable way out of this situation. Well, a well-known international evangelist came to visit me at my job. He did not know me but said that the Lord told him to pull two hundred dollars out the ATM machine and He would show him who to give it to. Well that day, he found me and gave me the exact amount that I needed. This is a foundation the Holy Spirit built as a memorial. It has led me to where I am today in faith for finances. He heard my cry that day and instantly answered. The Lord does provide.
